Information:

Daniel Arcus Incus Ululat Higgs

(Baltimore, Maryland)

[Thrill Jockey Records, Ideal Recordings, Ideologic Organ]

https://danielhiggs.bandcamp.com/

"A musician and artist from on whose behalf superlatives are destined to fail. It’s not that his artistic output – spanning three decades, numerous albums, books of poetry and collections of drawings – simply eludes classification, it defies it. Often we hear that a true work of art is meant to speak for itself, and with the work of Daniel Higgs the maxim rings truer than ever. His art is of the cosmos, we on Earth merely lucky that it happens to be confined to our atmosphere, in our lifetime.

Higgs is known primarily for his work as the sole lyricist and frontman of the band LUNGFISH, a four-piece dedicated to charting, in this listener’s estimation, nothing short of the evolution of all species, known and unknown. That the band has undertaken this pursuit in the guise of a humble rock outfit, in the absence of any public relations fanfare, metanarrative, or manifesto has been enough to endear them to tens of thousands. They are enshrined as one of America’s last true folk bands, and Higgs anointed as a patron saint to artistic purity.

Higgs has wedded his music and his visual art into a singular being, meant to be encountered as a conjuring force similar to that of the tarot experience. The yggdrasil is the great tree of Norse myth that connects all worlds of cosmology. Passing into Christian folklore, the tree is said to connect heaven and earth. In his relentless pursuit of the indivisible, Higgs travels up and down this spine and hatches a new transubstantiation of sound and image into life-form."

Ashley Paul

(Brooklyn/London)

[Slip, Important Records, Orange Milk Records]

“Dissonant chordal pluckings on a guitar, long tones on a clarinet and saxophone, a careful high voice creeping through it, bells and close-up noises of objects being shifted, pushed and scraped. Is it arranged? Is it made up on the spot? It’s almost all coming from Ashley Paul, a Brooklyn musician who sometimes sounds influenced by improvisers like Derek Bailey or Keith Rowe, and sometimes sounds as if she’s got nothing to do with any tradition at all — rather, a songwriter with a diaristic, private and flexible sense of what a song is.” – The New York Times

"Ashley's intuitive process integrates free form song structures with a focused approach to sound and clatter. A complexity of instruments including saxophone, clarinet, voice, prepared strings, bells and percussion create a delicate palette, uniquely her own."

She has performed and/ or recorded with Thurston Moore, Bill Nace, Rhys Chatham, Rashad Becker, Loren Connors, Gavin Bryars, Eli Keszler, C Spencer Yeh, Roscoe Mitchell, Aki Onda, Greg Kelley, Joe Morris, Seijiro Murayama, Phill Niblock and Heatsick.

Wenonoah

(Bristol)

[Howling Owl Records]

https://howlingowlrecords.bandcamp.com/album/wenonoah-something-funny-i-ate

"Purveyor of Fine Flesh Pop for Abstracted Humans.

I am Wenonoah. I write songs from the inside out. Sometimes they are dark, sometimes peaceful, sometimes funny. I try to keep things simple. I make music that explores change, identity, feeling small in a good way, desire, sadness, motion, stagnation, survival, what divides and what makes one of many."
